? that was all perfectly legal, just like it was all perfectly legal for mitt romney to pay a rate that really wasn't that much less in retrospect, but remember what a big deal fat cats, supposedly dodging the tax man then and ask yourself why the president, paying not much more, isn't remotely a big deal now. either for him or the media covering him. >> neil: welcome. glad to have you. here's the deal. barack and michelle obama paid taxes on $609,000 and that's how you get to the 18.4 rate. that's where the president's critics are only starting to get irate. >> obviously the president gives a lot to charity every year and that brings down the effective tax rate. when you walk through the numbers, that's what brings that number down. as you noted, the president's salary is $400,000 a year. the extra income that gets him up to $608,000 a year, is based upon book sales. book sales are actually down in 2012, down from 2011. you see that effective tax rate of 18.4%. as he pay 112,000 in federal taxes. he gave $150,000 no 33 different charities, including fisher house, which helps wounded warriors

about mitt romney, if people think chris sh -- chris christie was the cause of mitt romney not winning the election, the republicans could not win future elections. mitt romney's campaign leveled his chance for winning the election. >> i agree completely. it is weird to blame it on christie's response after a hurricane. i saw that last debate where mitt romney handed the election over to president obama when he could have actually buried him under benghazi, but he backed off. christie is a republican governor who washed up on the shores of a blue state like a red manatee. he must play the game because he needs to get re-elected, get him a national office and this goes away. it is idiotic and stupid. >> good point. he wins the election next year. then what? does he hold back to the right -- >> i don't think he moves right or left. >> bob, you tell me. he is a republican governor? >> i don't think he has to worry about getting re-elected. here is another thing to keep in mind, do you know for the first time in the history of the united states blacks voted at a higher percentage than the

," you are echoing the words of the great mitt romney who, of course, described 47% of this nation's people, population, as being a bunch of feckless free loaders. now, is that an issue of tone or content? because that appeared to be his policy position. he didn't seem to be wavering much from what you were just saying and yet the electorate decided they did not want mr. romney. >> well, again, martin, i'm not running from what mitt romney said. i don't think he said they were feckless free loaders. what you and i both know is we have a government right now, as we sit here right now, we have a government we can't afford. we have a government that does too much for too many people. and all of washington is trying to figure out how to fix that, but we know that we're broke. so what we as republicans need to do is say, i'm not going to sound like a democrat and keep expanding what we give people. martin, somebody in washington has got to be honest with the american people and say, we can't afford all of this. and if republicans say that, martin, and it costs us an election or two, so

is a good one like an ira, become a tax shelter. remember during the campaign when it turned out mitt romney had numbers of 85 up to 100 million in these tax-deferred accounts, let me tell you that only .03%, .03% of iras now are above this cap. so this is a very high class problem we are talking about. >> wait a minute. don't forget the 28% limit on deductions also damages tease tax-deferred accounts. you have to add them up. art laffer would you react to what jared said. >> i'll react. jared, i don't think savings accounts are where we want redistribution t. reason we have savings accounts is supposedly to get economic growth and jobs back to the system. in this tragically bleak design, tax environment, these tax savings for savings accounts, i think make a lot of sense. i would much rather see a full tax report of a low rate, flat tax. get rid of all this garbage and nonsense. >> ah! >> have one low rate which jerry brown proposed in 1982 and be done with all these other problems. >> we double tax investment and savings. why don't we just tax consumption. in other words, investment saving

just bring their partisan conflicts into the white house? would mitt romney and barack obama really cooperate? that's what they framers were talking about. alecer in hamilton talks about multiple presidents, rivalries. it don't thing that would happen. in fact the very good reason to think they'll develop a cooperative relationship. first, they wouldn't have incentives to have conflictual ual don connect newell relationships in tip tall power, sharing settings, each person or different people feel that by maneuvering and jockeying for power they can establish a dominant position, but in a college presidency i -- coalition presidency i propose no amount of maneuvering or back-stabbing or doing whatever else could lead to a dominant position. no matter what it would be a 50-50 relationship for the current term and after re-election. so there wouldn't be incentive to engage in conflict. more than that there would be a very important incentive to cooperate. when presidents reach the white house, they're at the top of the political ladder. at that point, the primary concern is the legacy

. there's a national incentive. mitt romney lost the white house, but every individual member of the house most of the republican incumbents are from safe republican districts and they are much more worried about appealing to republican america, and being safe from a republican primary challenge than they are to appealing to broadly national american that re-elected obama. so there has to be an incentive that makes the average member of the house care about his or her own seat. >> addressing these topics was smoesed to be their top priority and the fact that he they won't even come to the table for negotiations completely defeats the purpose that they ran for office. >> i sort of stipulated the tea party to me is a sort of response to obama. was it really ever about the deficit. >> with regard to the sequester, if anybody is going to get political capital from it, it's unclear. because the sequester cuts are so discrete, they're not sort of -- with the exception of the faa furloughs, they're felt in certain districts and not others, if you look at the polling, there's a pew poll that says
